We are delighted to announce that Dr. Sebastian Knorr won the Scott Helt Memorial Award 2012 for the best journal paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Broadcasting in 2011. The title of the paper is "3D-TV Content Creation: Automatic 2D-to-3D Video Conversion". Congratulations to Dr. Knorr and the co-authors.
3D-TV Content Creation: Automatic 2D-to-3D Video Conversion 
Three-dimensional television (3D-TV) is the next major revolution in television. A successful rollout of 3D-TV will require a backward-compatible transmission/distribution system, inexpensive 3D displays, and an adequate supply of high-quality 3D program material. With respect to the last factor, the conversion of 2D images/videos to 3D will play an important role. This paper provides an overview of automatic 2D-to-3D video conversion with a specific look at a number of approaches for both the extraction of depth information from monoscopic images and the generation of stereoscopic images. Some challenging issues for the success of automatic 2D-to-3D video conversion are pointed out as possible research topics for the future.
